Europa XS Europa, G-CCUL
On landing the aircraft settled lower than usual and a smell of burning rubber was apparent in the cockpit. When the pilot exited the aircraft he realised the gear had semi-retracted and the tyre was rubbing against the wheel well structure. The pilot reported this was most likely due to the latch on the gear selection lever not being properly engaged when the gear was selected down, allowing it to partially retract under the weight of the aircraft.
